Chicago IL 60640
Films start at DUSK - Outdoors
All movies on Saturday
6/12 - Monterey Pop (past date) - Otis Redding, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Ravi Shankar, The Who and MORE recorded LIVE. 2020 sucked for concerts. Hopefully this will make up for some of it..... (Concert Film)
POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN, more info to come - 7/10 - Be Kind Rewind (2008) - VHS TAPES!!! Remember those.... Since online streaming has taken over I think this would make for a VERY timely film. Also (if I remember right) the neighborhood the film takes place in seems just as diverse as ours. PG-13 (Comedy). Imagine if you had to recreate everyone's favorite movies just using what is around you with a zero budget and NO DIGITAL EFFECTS but LOTS of cardboard and duct tape. With Yasim Bey (Mos Def) and Jack Black.
7/31 - Crooklyn (1994) - One of my two favorite Spike Lee 'Joints'. This is a film about a family and the kids within it. All the highs and all of the lows during the summer in Brooklyn, NY circa 1973. Even though the main characters are the kids, this is not a 'little' kids film. PG-13 (Comedy, Drama). With Alfre Woodard and Delroy Lindo.
8/21 - Song Of The Sea (2014) - Every Tomm Moore project is worth seeing! Like all of the best animated kids films, it will entertain kids of all ages and adults. From when I first saw 'Secret of Kells' at the Chicago International Film Festival I knew this animator had a bright future. Also, if you want to learn about selkie's and/or enjoy mythology, this is the film for you!
